Creating BIG art
in a small place
Happy Birthday to respected art community member and colleague Daryl-Ann Dartt Hurst...
If you don't know Daryl-Ann yet, you've probably not spent enough time exploring art in the Seacoast or Southern Maine…because she is everywhere and definitely one of the hardest working artists we all know…and THANK YOU Daryl for all you do for this community!

I turned 60 today. I am not where I planned to be but in many ways,
Anne Vaughan entrusted two of her pieces with me for our next show - here’s “Rose Window”. Anne’s work has the energy that beats most modern painters.
This grandmother, a retired lawyer, and ex-museum docent, has a powerful, confident mark. Influenced by Delaunay, and the second wave of European Impressionists, she is highly adept at florals, landscapes and abstracts. Her most recent work delves into the socio-political with portraits of abused women, war victims, racially-triggered violence, etc.
I met Anne at the Red Saturday (BAA) event last year. She worked on a piece, and set it down to dry. A child subsequently stepped on it, and for her, a “no big deal”. She also sold a piece out of the parking lot later.
She will have this and another piece at Sole City this month. This group show will consist of work of mine, Anne Vaughan, Ruth Ann Bleau, Bill Moore, Beth Wittenberg, Bob Farrell, Christy Bruna, Erika Carty, Jim Munro and others. I will be hanging this show and pulling my own tomorrow afternoon.
